In an age of skepticism towards some traditional financial institutions, companies like Skrill, paysafecard and payolution, which don’t have complex legacy infrastructures, can be nimble and provide a range of alternative services to meet customer needs. I look forward to taking the finance function to the next level, and working with the leadership team to further grow the business,” Davide Clarke added on his new position.
